What is Software Reliability Engineering?

Software reliability engineering (SRE) directs software development and test measurably. SRE is the anticipation, quantification, and management of software systems, with the goal of satisfying customers at the highest level. SRE also is effective in cutting extra testing and maintenance, provides better resources and schedule control, and accomplishes customer approval.

  • Software reliability engineering is a multidimensional discipline
  • Software reliability engineering covers the software product lifecycle
  • Software reliability engineering includes both technical and management actions focusing on:
    • SRE measurement
    • Prediction
    • Approximation

Standard SRE Process Steps:

  • Reliability goals definition
  • Operational profiles definition
  • Reliability testing

Reliability Targets

  1. Defining coherently the concept of failure for the software product.
  2. Selecting usual reference calculation for all failure modes
  3. Establishing Failure Intensity Objective (FIO) for each related system
  4. For any software you develop:
  5. FIO by deducting the total of the FIOs of all hardware and developed software factors from the system FIOs.
    B. Select software reliability policies to accomplish settled software FIO and schedule objectives with lowest development cost

Operational Profile

  • It reflects how software is used
  • It involves a requirement of classes of input and the likelihood of their happening
  • It is somewhat simple to analyze the operational profile for a new software system that is replacing an existing manual or automated system. But, when the system is new, it is more complicated to predict how it is going to be used
  • The operational profile depends on the features of the software environment, the applications used, their ins and outs, and their usage frequencies
  • Defining the operational profile consists of identifying major system operations, their occurrence possibilities, and their inventers

Operational Profile Design

  • Customer profiles: individuals, groups of persons, or organizations purchasing the system.
  • User profiles: individuals, groups of persons, or organizations using the system
  • System mode profiles: series of related business functions or operations
  • Functional profiles: categorize the system into a set of user-oriented functions or operations with corresponding usage frequencies
  • The design of the operational profile includes collecting and assessing the various conditions or modes under which the software is used

Reliability Validation

  1. Identifying operational profiles
  2. Preparing test data
  3. Applying test to system
  4. Computing reliability

Why Do You Need Software Reliability Engineering Training?

  • Software is a crucial element of many safety- critical systems. Such systems rely on the reliable operation of software components.
  • This training helps you decide if the software is ready to ship after system test or not
  • This training helps you identify if an acquired or developed component is acceptable or not
